Reviews - cbc poems from enRoute
“A gritty, original collection on a subject rarely addressed: the surprising affinities between crime and poetry. To gather material for a mystery novel, Landale accompanied RCMP officers on patrol. In Once a Murderer, the novel’s protagonist has stepped out of prose fiction into poetry that is consuming and seductive. A running subversive commentary on love, crime and poetry appears in the margins, giving depth and flesh to the voices.”Buy

“What is most impressive about Colour of Winter Air is the ability of the writing to probe so effectively both the inner and outer human worlds. Though firmly rooted in everyday experience, these poems constantly reach
to generate an expanded and expanding vision that combines meaning and emotion, reality and possibility, in a powerful display of both wisdom and hope.
Zoë Landale’s words reveal and illuminate not only the lives we lead, but the often-hidden existence hind our day-to-day activities, and a better future glowing below the mundane surface of things.”
